The ancient though highly accessible art of mosaic is currently undergoing a revival, both as a versatile craft and as a decorative feature in contemporary design.
Appealing to beginners and experienced mosaic artists alike, "Weekend Crafts: Mosaics" features indoor and outdoor projects using a wide range of styles, materials and techniques that can be completed over a weekend.
Written with infectious enthusiasm by a leading authority on the subject, this exciting book offers clear instruction and step-by-step photographs and drawings, along with templates for many of the designs.
The Getting Started chapter provides a detailed introduction to the equipment required, the materials available, cutting and mosaic techniques, and a useful glossary of terms.
This allows the beginner - and those with more experience - to get to grips with the techniques and materials and to complete one of the many beautiful mosaics featured in the Projects section in just a few days.
